How to Make a Simple Manga
Step 1

    Drawing a manga is usually tougher than drawing just a fanart because it requires more planning and efforts. Also writing a manga is not like writing a text story, because the pictures in the manga tell a story while the words in the novels tell the story. ""Making up a story as you go along" won't work good with drawing manga for such method is very prone to mistakes that can be remedied easily only in text stories. After all, we don't want to draw a page that was later found to contain mistakes, and start the entire page (several or worse, entire manga) over again. Okay, let's go over what you will need for making a manga.

    Papers
    A ruler
    A triangle (optional)
    Pencils with varying hardnesses.
    Ink pens
    Your choice of coloring methods (computer coloring, pencil coloring, or just no colors).
    Computer Art Program that is better than Microsoft Paint Shop such as Ahobe Paint Pro or MGI Photostudio 8 as examples.
    Understanding of how to resize and convert the pictures to JPG.
    And most important of all, be able to use your brains and imaginations to plan ahead.
